Default Re: NBN Fibre to the Node (FTTN) - What does it mean to us?

It means nothing at all if you aren't even on the 5 year plan.

FTTN was a political sop to stop Telstra spitting the dummy over them not building the fibre network. That it also helps raise significant revenue for the use of an already past it's use by date copper network is just a bonus for Telstra.

The reality is that like any GovCo project, the end cost of the original network was going to be stupid thanks to the poor management and greed of most of the suppliers to the project - and I do know what I am talking about on that score but it is something we are going to have to do anyway so we might as well have bitten the bullet now.

Stupidity reigns supreme as usual.
